The 2013 NASCAR season is underway in southern California this weekend, with sunny and warm weather greeting the drivers and fans alike.
A full-slate of the stock car racing is on the docket this weekend in Fontana, Calif., 50 miles east of the Los Angeles in suburban San Bernardino County. The main event, the Sprint Cup series Auto Club 400, will get started at noon PDT today.
Just like Saturday, the southern California weather will be spectacular, with plenty of sunshine and highs in the mid-70s. Spectators will want to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated and use sunscreen to prevent sunburn in the early afternoon sun.
The 2012 edition of the Auto Club 400 race was shortened to 129 of 200 laps by rain showers. Tony Stewart took the checkered flag of the shortened race after taking the lead on lap 85.
